London duo The Big Pink, which broke out in 2009 with the band’s debut LP A Brief History Of Love, announced a big change today.

Chief instrumentalist Milo Cordello announced today via the band’s Facebook page that he will be leaving the group. He will be focusing his future efforts on his New York-based label Merok, which has produced material from artists such as Teenage Fantasy and Blondes.

This doesn’t, however, mark the end of The Big Pink. The name will continue as the solo project of Robbie Furze, who was the principle songwriter before Cordello’s departure.

Furze is working on his third LP (following 2012’s Future This), and will be supporting Black Rebel Motorcycle Club on the band’s upcoming UK tour.
